Glendora is a village in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi. The population was 285 at the 2000 census.HistoryGlendora was developed by European Americans as a small sawmill site. Logs were floated down the river from around the vicinity of Webb to be processed here.The first settlement developed two miles south of Glendora at Black Bayou. When the railroad was built through the territory in 1883, a station was located there and called Glendora. The town immediately grew. A post office was established in 1900 and a voting precinct was established.Cane Lake Lumber Company built a large sawmill here which operated until 1909. It was moved to another site.In 1955, Elmer Kimbrell, a white man, shot and killed Clinton Melton, an African-American resident, in front of three witnesses after an argument about how much gas Melton had pumped into Kimbrell's car. Kimbrell was acquitted by an all-white jury after a short trial. At this time, most blacks in Mississippi were still disenfranchised due to state barriers; they were not part of the jury pool because they were not registered voters and they were excluded from the political system.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 0.1sqmi, all land.DemographicsAt the 2000 census, there were 285 people, 69 households and 60 families residing in the village. The population density was 2,011.5 per square mile (786.0/km²). There were 73 housing units at an average density of 515.2 per square mile (201.3/km²). The racial makeup was 4.56% White, 92.28% African American, 0.70% Native American, and 2.46% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.16% of the population.
